- “Pardon me? What did you all just say?”
“Sahib, breakfast is included in your room tariff.”
Just in case you are looking at my AL FAREJ HOTEL series of Posts for the first time, let me show you a few photos of the hotel.
A few photos of my amazing room.
“I am paying US $58.94 for easily one of the best hotel rooms I have ever, in-my-entire-life, stayed in. Now you are telling me that breakfast is included in my room tariff?”
“Yes Sahib, go to our restaurant up on the roof level of the hotel. We hope you will enjoy your breakfast in the morning!”
“Well not bad at all. I can easily make-do with a roll / or a piece of toast and perhaps a small glass of juice.”
9AM, Sunday Morning, October the 2nd, 2016
“Oh come on! What have we here? A real restaurant!”
Below are what will become ‘My Two Tables’.
“What is this? A full menu? With choices? A Starter, A Main Course and A Desert? ” .. “Yes Sahib.”
“Lord God in Heaven Above? Have I just died here in Dubai? Am I now in Heaven Oh Lord God!”
The Starter is on the left. Greek olives, lettuce, carrots, cucumber and tomato slices. The Breakfast is on the right, a vegetable omelette with sausages, a grilled tomato and potatoes along with toast and jam.
And now for ‘Breakfast Desert’! A nice fruit bowl.
You Have Got To Be Kidding Me !
I am, in the final analysis, when it comes to my food, a Man-of-Great-Honor!
I cleaned up my table. I took my dishes to the kitchen. I thanked and I saluted the kitchen crew!
9AM, Monday morning, October the 3rd, 2016
I ask you to ‘take-note-of ‘ the silver chaffing dishes on the right in the photo below.
Will you all now ‘take-note-of ‘ the silver chaffing dishes on the left in the photo below.
Today I again sat at one of ‘My Two Tables’ off to the side of the main seating area.
Taa – Daa! We now enjoy my Monday morning Breakfast.
What have we here? The Starters are now buffet style. I can ingest a large quantity of ( on the left below ) my beloved Greek olives. Nice cheese in the center and watermelon slices below right.
Did each of you take-note-of the silver chaffing dishes as I asked you to do above?
Below we will now take-a-peek inside of them.
Fragrant cooked rice with a decorative tomato flower.
Good ol’ baked beans.
Very mild sausages ( lamb ).
Shrooms ( mushrooms ) just for you Patti.
Fried tomatoes. Above and below I noticed the kitchen staff have a feel for what the guests are eating and they are not filling up the chaffing dishes with an over abundance of food which may not be eaten. Good thinking.
Hard boiled eggs cooked to perfection.
Cereal, coffee, jam, butter and bread for toast. You can toast your bread as-you-like!
Notice my dark toast and cup of Greek olives. I did NOT go crazy with the buffet.

The restaurant is on the roof level. I am ( ah-h-h-h ) a bit of an adventurer. I found out how I could get access to the roof of the hotel.
And now for your very first look at MY Dubai!
NOT Tourist Fancy Dubai All Pretty and Dressed Up. Just the Real Deal.
Does it look warm in these photos? Well it is an extremely cool, yet very dry warmth at 85 F.
MY Dubai. MY Dubai is real people living real lives.
Yes there is construction under way.
Can you believe all of the satellite dishes?
Study for a moment the below photo. I am looking-down from the roof at the view I see from my window. I will show it to you after you study this below photo.
The below photo was taken from my room through the double glass thermal window.
I am out on the street in the above and below photos.
Well friends, that is that for this Post.
Thank You Patti for proof reading it with me.
Spiritually I believe that one truly knows when one is where one is supposed to be.
For me, For now, I belong right here in Dubai U.A.E.
